Train Carrying MH17 Bodies Arrives in Kharkiv and Black Boxes Handed Over
7 years
Reports of Further Shelling of Ukrainian Positions From Russian Territory

The train, onto which the bodies of those killed on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 have been loaded and stored for several days now, has arrived in city of Kharkiv, having safely left separatist-controlled territory.

Interfax-Ukraine reports:

A train carrying the remains of the victims of the crash of the Malaysian Boeing 777-200 plane arrived in Kharkiv from Donetsk at 1125 [8:25 GMT].

An Interfax-Ukraine reporter said that the train had approached the Kharkiv-Balashivsky station. After the locomotive is changed, it will be moved to the Malyshev Plant, where the bodies are to be loaded into special equipment brought from the Netherlands.

The train consists of five refrigerated cars and a conventional passenger car with the inscription "Donbas" and a plate reading "Donetsk-Moscow."

The train is currently guarded by police. Law enforcement officers are not making any official comments.

Earlier, as reported by Reuters, the self-proclaimed prime minister of the separatist 'Donetsk People's Republic', the Russian Aleksandr Boroday, handed over the 'black box' flight recorders to a Malaysian official:

Early on Tuesday, senior separatist leader Aleksander Borodai handed over the black boxes in the city of Donetsk.

"Here they are, the black boxes," Borodai told journalists at the headquarters of his self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic as an armed rebel placed the boxes on a desk.

Colonel Mohamed Sakri of the Malaysian National Security Council said the two black boxes were "in good condition".
